Living in the Moment with Gen Kelsang Suma

image20

 Practical classes on Buddhist thought and meditation. Each half-day class is self-contained, and consists of guided meditations, teachings, and time for questions and discussion.


Living in the Moment: If we check, our mind is always swinging back and forth, one minute obsessing about the past and the next minute worried about the future. Either way, we are never fully in the present for long. Explore Buddha’s teachings on what living in the moment really means. Connect with the peace and happiness available to us moment by moment.


Each class will look at different aspects of living in the moment and relevant meditation practices.


  • Saturday October 19 2019
  • Saturday November 16 2019


$15 cash at the door.  9:30 -11:30 AM both dates. Everyone is welcome.

Kirtan Culture Initiative
The Kirtan Culture Initiative (KCI) is a newly formed Toronto-based project whose aim is to share the heart-opening practice of kirtan yoga (musical mantra meditation) along with the holistic aspects of bhakti-yoga.  Kirtan (musical mantra meditation) has the power to tap into deep states of consciousness and can also invoke exciting feelings of joy and energy.   The KCI's aim is to continue to build, contribute and nurture the growing practice of kirtan and bhakti-yoga in yoga studios, wellness centres and sacred spaces.
